My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.


A Summer Haiku and So Long for Now…


I’m taking a blog break for the next few weeks.

Plan to spend more time outside and to work on several projects in progress too.

You can read more about what me AND Mr. Cheddar are working on here. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I wish all my readers a happy, healthy and memorable summer. May it be your best one ever! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll be back to blogging before autumn, hope to see you then.

Three Haiku Poems on the Cusp of Summer

Summer has certainly been “in the air” here in BC, in the past couple of weeks.

We reached 34C, one day last week and more warm weather is apparently on the way, very soon.

Right now we are having a bit of a cool spell, with rain and that’s welcome too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Takes care of all the dust!

Hope you enjoy these three summer haiku/haiga from the archives, celebrating all things to come. It’s going to be a good summer, I just know it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a Wonderful Week!ย 


Haiku Reflections: Spring IS On the Way!

spring IS on the way haiku

We had a glorious, sunny day yesterday, here in Interior BC.

Joe and I took some time off from work/chores/to-do-lists and decided to take a LONG walk.

We ended up down at our lake shore, sitting in the sun, soaking up some rays and good energy. ๐Ÿ™‚

It felt so good to have sun on my face again and to see a really clear, blue sky, ๐Ÿ™‚ after too many weeks of dark cloudy days. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Spring really IS on the way here.

How about where you are? Any signs of spring?ย 

Have a wonderful week! ย

Haiku Reflections: The Promise of Spring

the promise of spring haiku

Not much color here yet, in Interior BC, just a lot of greys and browns to look at. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Thought this haiku and “pop” of color ย from my photo files would make for a nice change today. ย 

How are things where you are? Any buds, plants, flowers in bloom yet?

Wishing You a Wonderful Week! ๐Ÿ™‚
